Written in 1994.

For Cummings' Hundredth

Champion of leaf and life, love and bud, bee and tree,
     Of all things minuscule, whimsical, glad and true,
Slayer of seeming Mind with keenly greenest glee,
     Routing scoundrels of Same with Am so brave and new,
          Tiniest i who learned
               From Spríng-bírds how to see
          (Brandishing birth and Yes
               Against grim falsity),
       Praiser of thoughtless feeling and first, we Thank You.

Interesting. I'm scanning it all over again. And 1994 was the year I was born. :D
